Next Update: 14th October 2021, 22.00hrs
We are currently repairing a burst water pipe in Edinbane which is causing the interruption to the water supply for customers in Portree.
The full repair will take an estimated 3 and a half hours from now to complete.
The water supply will gradually return to normal for customers once the repair has been completed. We expect it will take up to an hour for all customers to have normal water supply restored.
While we carry out the repair please be aware that you may experience no water supply, low / intermittent pressure or discoloured water.
At present we expect to complete the repair in a timeframe which means we do not plan to provide bottled water at distribution locations.
